I needed something special for my review #222 and this is it! There are several listings on Amazon for what appears to be the same book.
Mine has a white hard cover, with the name "YHWH" and the Holy Spirit with 7 rays of fire coming down being received into 7 pairs of open hands. (The teachings coming down from Heaven.) Directly inside the book, it says "a teaching given on seven levels to be read and visualized in preparation for the Brotherhood of Light, to be delivered for the quickening of the "people of Light". I guess that really says it all. Some of you will understand what that means and won't even need to read the rest of my review.
The book talks about the unfoldment of the Divine Mind, opening your heart, and bringing the music of the soul to the next level. It talks about spiritual advancement, the Tree of Life, the Light, the Shekinah Presence, Christ, the Elohim, the Adam Kadmon, etc. Again, many of you reading this already understand what I'm talking about. The book says the Keys were given on Jan 2/3, 1973 to prepare mankind for the activation of events that are to come to pass in the next 30 years of earth time. (So, 2003). They are said to be the Keys from Super Angel Metatron, the creator of the Keys, who is guide to the biblical Enoch.
The book was written in 1973, based on ancient information passed by Metatron. It also ties in some things I have read in the Kaballah (ancient Hebrew test). It's a different kind of book. It's not a story, it's not a "how to" book. For lack of better description, I would call it a "new age" bible. According to this book, there were 64 keys given to Enoch. The keys tell you how to live in the Light. Each key is told, then explained by Bible-like text. Some keys are long and some are shorter. The book does not need to be read front to back. Also like the Bible, you can pick it up, open it, and read whatever you want to read. Note: I did NOT say this book was THE Bible. I just said it is somewhat similar in the way it was written, so you can understand something about this book while you are trying to decide if you want to buy it or not. A spiritual friend recommended it to me several years ago. I'm glad I finally bought it. It is interesting. It also has pictures throughout that are said to possess messages hidden within them. Obviously, I can't tell you if they do or not. They are unusual pictures and very colorful. They have pyramids and the eye of God and some have egyptian figures, for example. You just have to decide what it all means to you. I try to pick the book up every night and read at least a page. You also find references to things written in the Book of Revelations (the 4 horses of the Apocalypse, the breaking of the seven seals, etc).
(By the way, as I've said in other reviews- the term "new age" kind of bothers me because it gives an impression that concepts that are thousands of years old sound like recent fads, so I don't really like the term. That meaning is not intentional. It's just what people seem to interpret. But what I think the term really means is the coming of a new age, a new world where people live a more spiritual existence in peace and love. I vote for that! Namaste'.

This book is a wonderful teaching. When I first started trying to read this book, I understood what is meant by ' It is difficult at first to swim in a big ocean' for it was difficult to understand, but it was evident that there is something very worthwile beyond the text printed on the page, and so i kept swimming through its pages describing the unification of the world's religion's and language systems, how the divine name of God, YHWH is embedded in the DNA code, and so much more . And after working with it for only almost a year, it is clear that this text is of very high integrity and of a great loving intent of the author and of those who inspired it. I would suggest this book for anyone who feels drawn to it. It is MORE than worth the money(by the way, i suggest you get it from the website [...] This text is of great importance, and has impacted my life permamently.

Either `The Keys of Enoch' is way too deep for my current level of understanding, or it's just a bunch of new-age mumbo-jumbo mixed in with some scientific jargon and the claim of divine revelation to make it sound legitimate. One of the Keys reads:
"The Keys to future luminaries tells us that molecular biology will reveal that molecular changes in enzymes change with the Arch of Light Patterns which are "Living Grid Mechanisms" aligned with polarization focus over the third eye."
Without commenting on how ridiculous that sounds, my main question is, even if on some level this is all legitimate information, what exactly are we supposed to do with it? The book if full of very interesting metaphors, images and interpretations, but in the end it asks us to accept the information as revealed truth. Many great spiritual books use images and metaphors in order to teach us lessons on different levels. We are rarely asked to accept the stories as literally true. This, like much of the channeled work out there, asks us to do the almost impossible: take the information it presents at face value. But even if we do, then what?
It's much like the Book of Revelations. There are many ways of interpreting it, but none of the interpretations leave you edified in the same way as the Gospels do. All you end up with are a bunch of thoughts about what might happen in the future.
If someone can understand the Keys and put them to use, then this book may be a revelation of great importance. The way I see it, if I can't verify the information in a book through my own experience, it's worthless to me. Whether it's because I'm not ready for that information yet or because it's a bunch of crap someone made up to sell books doesn't matter as much as the fact itself.
While I found this book interesting, I don't understand people raving about books that they themselves can't even begin to comprehend. I prefer reading the works of Sri Aurobindo, A. H. Almaas, or especially Ram Dass or Sai Baba; these are works that actually deal with emotional and spiritual transformation of the self. The truth about what is out there isn't nearly as important as the truth which we all must strive to become. This is the only thing we can really know and the only thing truly worth pursuing.

This book was given to me in my 20's. At the time, I had no idea what it was about, it took me 10 years to crack it open. Now, looking back, I can't believe I waited sooo long! LOL It is truly amazing and I would highly recommend it if you are on a spiritual path and want to be present to Earth changes that are happening now, and what the future plan of Earth is. This information was directly downloaded into J. J. Hurtak's consciousness. He is a scientist by profession and really knows what he is talking about. He is thorough and he explains everything in detail. Don't let the biblical look of it throw you off, just embrace every word. It will truly open doors you never imagined were there.

An interesting study for any lifelong student of ancient wisdom and religion. Not a book to sit and read from beginning to end like a novel. Reader should have some background in jewish mysticism, enoch, metatron, quantum physics, vibration, sound and color theories.

I've owned this book (a second edition) since the 1980's. I've picked it up and looked at it over the years - but a few days ago (well, on 1-11-11) I picked it up and started reading it from the beginning. I've barely put it down since. Do I "get" all of it? No. Do I agree with every single thing it says? No....but...I'm a long-time Urantia Book reader and it's amazing to me how many concepts from the UB are contained in the Keys of Enoch. I don't know if Dr. Hurtak read the Urantia Book before his experience with Enoch - but Enoch's and Metatron's description of the universe(s) and other revelations - very much match what I have been studying for over 30 years now. I believe what he was given has to do with what is about to occur with our planet on 12-21-12. Too much to get into now - but concepts I have been thinking about and contemplating for many years are getting very fine-tuned with the information I'm reading in this book. I do not believe we are heading towards "Armegeddon", by the way - but, rather, a kind of "reconnection" - a getting back on track with our planet. Further, I believe that all people who have spiritually awakened or are awakening on earth - need to put some of their energy towards this process. That's why - regardless of where one is at on their journey - reading this book may help to varying degrees. One thing I read in the book has been particularly startling. I work pretty extensively with the Chakra System. For the past five or six years another chakra has appeared over my head - the 8th chakra - in aura photographs that have been taken of me. It's a shpere with wings. I've never found any compelling description of this phenomenon except in Hartek's book. It makes perfect sense for my personal experiences. If you're drawn to the book but are overwhelmed by it's contents - give it a try anyway. Namaste....

This is a very inspiring and revealing book. Dr. Hurtuk has accomplished whatever it is he was set out to do. However the usefulness of these words from Enoch and others, I doubt. It seems highly doubtful that the good Dr. could have an experience such as he states and return to this dimension and time frame feeling at all comfortable about being here.
I am not ignorant when it comes to siritual experiences and do not claim that I have ever had anything this astounding happen to me; I haven't. However I have experienced the " flash of light" this does bring one into knowledge directly given within, and though it was not new to the outer world, it was to me, and was accurate.
But for what it is worth, I think this book is priced to high. You can purchase this book through The Academy For Future Science, the price is fifty dollars plus tax.
I do agree with Mr. Thorpe! In these days we need information that we can test for ourselves. We need confirmation within our own spirit of these truths or writings, whether they are of Dr. Hurtuks or someone else.
Good reading to all who purchase this book. May you find what you are searching for. Love Is the Goal!

In 1973 during prayer Professor James Hurtak, a social scientist, comparative religionist, and scholar was met by a heavenly visitor and whisked aloft for a divine journey which included being given instructions to record his experience--"...a Light was projected into my third eye which imprinted the scenario abstracts that contained the Keys" In 1977 the first edition of an often cited metaphysical classic The book of knowledge: the keys of Enoch: a teaching given on seven levels in preparation for the brotherhood of light, to be delivered for the quickening of the "People of Light" by J J Hurtak and published by the Academy for Future Science (.txt). It has been in print continuously since that first edition. Not since Swedenborg has a man of academic stature made such bold claims of Ascension to the creator for his manuscript inspiration and delivered such quality in the body of his published work.
The work was directly received from the Divine Father facilitated by Master Orphanim Enoch and Metatron and has been described by Jon Klimo as containing "the single most scientifically rich and puzzling set of channeling-related paranormally received material in modern times." It has a crisp, clean, pristine feel about it indicative of quality information. The verbiage is intentionally obscured by the use of less used words because the source wanted to convey an enhanced vibration with those words. In an interview Hurtak is careful to differentiate his experience from a classical revelation and qualify it as a "blueprint of futuristic scenarios, specific ongoing visions and discoveries rather than a singular revelation pinned to a singular timeframe."
The Keys is supplied as an attractive ivory clothbound book with colored illustrations and emblazoned with the ancient name of God, YHWH, on the cover. It is formatted as a holy book with the verses numbered. The work does not have a table of contents, but has an excellent glossary and index. A concordance is also available. The content is an order of magnitude more detailed than any other work of prophecy cited on this site with the proviso that understanding the content is another matter. The language used makes great demands on the reader. Unless you are a biblical scholar, theoretical physicist, kabalistic magician and realized, connected mystic all rolled into one, the full meaning and symbology of many passages will remain hidden to you. As long as you have this expectation in advance you will know many nuances will just go right over your head. According to the Keys "It is nonetheless available to everyone who seeks the deeper meaning with the mind's eye and the eye of the spirit,...." The author warns that this is a reference work, reading it cover to cover is not the purpose.
"Why were the Keys given at this time? Enoch and Metatron have manifested this Revelation so as to prepare mankind for the quantum changes affecting every level of intelligence upon this planet. We now have the opportunity to collectively move into another system of creation. The Keys to Shekinah universes explain how the spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit will be given to the Christ Race so spiritual Man can work directly with 'whole Light beings'-- the angelic messengers who will prepare the righteous of the earth for the Council of Light which will be established upon the earth at the time of the new heavens and the new earth."
New Body: [In the future scenario that he was shown: ]"The physical form of life passed into greater 'light' and the matter-energy bodies of the faithful were advanced into fifth-dimensional bodies of Light, into the greater universe. Hence, through a fifth-dimensional reality of Light, the physical form passed into a tremendous effulgence of Light so that they who went on as a family of faith never knew that they had "died" in the temporality of the body. (Key 319:143) We will "become a new Race of the Covenant of Light that can indwell in many light systems in harmony with the Paradise Sons." "In this transformation Man must sacrifice his 'I' of individuality for the collective 'I AM ' to ascend to God's Kingdom and surrender to the work of the Father first above all else." "Once Man has evolved into the next consciousness dimension he, like Jacob, can go up the galactic lattice into other space and time fields..."
Quantum Moment: "Enoch told me that at this time the Higher Evolution will communicate knowledge to Man to prepare him for an exodus as his planet begins to experience geophysical upheavals..." "During the time of the space-time overlap, the People of God will collectively put on new garments of Light as they ascend through the spheres and through the thresholds of the other worlds of creation." "Upon entering the lip of the electromagnetic null zone, the whole solar system will be picked up and reseeded in a different vibratory dimension of the galaxy... which will require fifth-dimensional bodies."
Who will go: "There is presently occurring a space-time overlap with 'the Higher Evolution' as the Earth's solar system enters an electromagnetic null zone, a vacuum area in space which will change the magnetic forces of creation....[which] will activate some species to become more violent and other species more Christ-like...". "...those physicals who will be taken in these Merkabah vehicles will have loved and served their fellowman and will love whatever specie the Father would assign them to."
Status Quo: "The nations of the Earth who deny the crossing of light through the Alpha-Omega of creation, deny the Merkabah, deny the Prophets of Israel, and do not show the humility necessary to enter the greater Body of Light. These are not the souls who will enter the Great White Brotherhood." "Those... who will not 'choose to be chosen' in taking the higher spiral of Light, instead of the lower spiral of decay and entropy, will not receive 'final destruction' but a return to the beginnings of meta-matter and primeval 'Earth.'" "...those who cut off their body-cosmos from "the House" will remain in the cistern of mire."
Religion: In the keys there is an acknowledgement of the Church of Moroni (Mormon), the truth of their sacred scriptures and an explanation that their church was the living tribe of Joseph of Egypt. He warns of the many other false priesthoods of Earth with overly simplistic teachings which mislead and prevent soul growth." He predicts that we "will overcome the false powers of religionists who deny 'ongoing prophecy,'" those who worship the words of dead prophets and ignore the living prophets of today as mentioned by Joel (and Acts) in the Bible. He was shown that the faithful to the new prophecies would be subject to "public crucifixion" if they shared the new prophecies.
When: "During this period of the next thirty years, the planetary mind will enter a dimension of time-space beyond conventional time-space and be transfigured..."

Format: HardcoverVerified Purchase
First off I want to start by stating that I'm only so far into this book, and haven't quite gotten to the end. With that said, I want to state that the book is an enormous wealth of information, that needs to be read, then reread, then reread again before it's fully absorbed. It's a well written book, but in some instances gets a bit muddled. In some parts it's simplistic and easy to understand while in other places it goes off in other directions that one simply has to read several times before getting the full affect of the information. For me, I'll probably have to read this several times, and probably purchase some additional references before I'll fully understand what the author is saying. But by no means should this distract new buyers. This is a great book. It's a book that makes you think, that takes you on a journey and makes you search your very soul for what makes you - well you. If you really are looking to search yourself and understand faith and belief, then read this.
